Private Eye (Deluxe) | Brian K Vaughan
15 posts | 14 read | 28 to read
"Colorful and relevant..." -"Slate" From the creator of the "New York Times "bestselling series "SAGA," comes the three-time, Eisner nominated, PanelSyndicate.com's digital comics sensation "THE PRIVATE EYE"! Finally, this book is coming to print in a beautiful deluxe hardcover edition! Set in an inevitable future of where everyone has a secret identity, THE PRIVATE EYE is an eerily prescient sci-fi mystery about an unlicensed private investigator who stumbles onto the most important case of his life. The series is set in 2076, a time after "the cloud has burst," revealing everyone's secrets. As a result, there is no more Internet, and people are excessively guarded about their identity, to the point of appearing only masked in public. "Readers and retailers have been begging us for a physical version of this story ever since we first announced our hard-boiled parable about the future of privacy in America, so when the time came, Marcos and I knew that we had to go with Image Comics, the most creator-friendly publisher of print comics ever." -Brian K. Vaughan

As a fan of Saga, I was curious about this graphic novel. First off the illustrations as usual are great! The story wasn't bad either. A P.I. gets mixed up trying to do a background check on a woman when she winds up dead and her sister wants him to figure out who murdered her. I love his assistant throughout the book... without her, this would be a one star book. The ending was confusing therefore it gets 2 1/2 stars from me.

I absolutely loved this story about the near future where society is dealing with the fallout of all of humanity‘s secrets in “the cloud” have been leaked. The internet doesn‘t exist anymore, the press are like the police, and everyone takes on nyms so no one knows personal information about anyone. My favorite character was Gramps.

tpixie Great cover! 2y

Well...that was eerily relevant. My friend bought me this book a few years back so, of course, I haven't read it (#librarianproblem #noduedate) but I was home sick and needed something to read and finally picked this up and DEVOURED IT!!! BKV is one of my favorite authors and this did not disappoint.

"Private Eye" is set fifty years after everyone's internet searches & activities are made public. There's no longer active internet, but there are technological advancements & some even argue that they're of greater importance than during the internet era. This graphic novel explores the negative side of the internet & the myth that easily accessible information leads to better informed citizens. The story is compelling & the artwork phenomenal.

Leniverse Earlier today I saw that on a list of dystopian books to read in the Trump era. Along with 1984, Brave New World, The Handmaid's Tale and a few others. 3y
vivastory @Leniverse I saw that list too. I can see why they included it. 3y
Waynegjr It's so good. Plus it's available as a "pay what you can" at Panelsyndicate.com 3y

Gorgeous edition of former web comic that is going to be murder to shelve because of its odd shape.

The story is a satisfying blend of speculative noir that quickly establishes the rules and then allows them to play out. In plot terms this is as sophisticated and as cinematic as anything I've seen recently.

Meaty and fun, this was a great find.

Eyelit I love that one! 3y

Future noir. The 'cloud' bursts and privacy is at a premium, so much so that people literally wear masks/costumes and have multiple aliases. Libraries are sacred and the press are the police. P.I., a paparazzi, is thrust into a case that will have serious consequences for the society he lives in. I had no idea what I was getting into when I picked this up. I really enjoyed this. Such a good comic!

Heh. Also appropriate for Summer Reading Program.

Brian K Vaughan is magical. I think he's incapable of writing a boring story.

I love all of Brian K. Vaughan's work and this is no exception. A P.I.'s work is never easy, add in the obstacle of no internet and everyone hides their faces behind masks in this interesting spin on what the future may look like. Possibly sooner than we may think...
